*sheepish wave* hi gang, long time no see!
« on: April 05, 2010, 12:07:06 pm »
Hello everyone :) longtime no see/read!

 It's been about 18 months since I posted last, It became really painful for me after the rescue shut down and we lost the house/rescue kennels to have much to do with people and places I associated with rescues. So, sorry :( But we have been doing really well, I got married! and all the animals were welcomed into the family and we now live in a house twice the size of my old one. I am in the process of opening my own buisness, which will be a training facility, retail store, indoor dog park and rescue facility all in one. I'm also back in school and fostering again! Its amazing how much time you have on your hands when you are no longer taking care of a couple hundred rescues.

Well, like I said, we started fostering again and we recently took in a very heavily pregnant black lab from our notorious animal control. She had her x-ray today and I gotta admit I am a little confused at what I am seeing. The vet estimated 14 puppies at 52-55 days. So I have been staring at this picture for the last couple hours and trying to count little skulls and spines and pelvis bones, and thinking "Gee, I wish there was a place I could post this and see if I could get a bunch of opinions" and a light bulb went off HEY how long has it been since I visited BPO??

So here I am :)

Anyone want to take a gander at this x-ray and guess how many babies there are? (and how far along she is)

Hey there Shawn!

You may remember me as dogs4ever.
Some crap happened here on the board last June, so the majority of us left, and started a new board up.
